Best book podcast

I have been meaning to write a review for this podcast for so long. I look forward to every episode. The interviews with authors are excellent. I have discovered countless books, both through the interviews as well as from what the reviewers themselves are reading. Pauline Paul is outstanding.
Sincere thanks to her and her colleagues.

Essential listening

Perfect mix of interviews with authors (Pamela Paul is a terrific interviewer), reviews, news from publishing and my fave What we’re Reading. You can keep on top of (American) books just by listening each week.

Makes for a great commute

Listening to this podcast has transformed my commute. Thank you for filling me with the stories and the back stories. Pamela Paul is a terrific interviewer but I also enjoy the "what we are reading" segment each week.
